While many Houstonians are still picking up the pieces from Hurricane Harvey, another Atlantic Hurricane season looms ahead and will be here before we know it. Meteorologists have predicted that 2018 will be about as active as last year, with an estimated 3-5 of these storms being major hurricanes.
So what can you do to prepare? Aside from stocking up, boarding your home, and keeping your family safe, the most important step is to make sure your insurance policy covers any and all damages that can result from hurricanes.
The two most important coverages to discuss with your agent are flood insurance and homeowners insurance. Flood insurance is especially important for Houstonians, given our proximity to the coast and our recent experience with Harvey. The National Flood Insurance Program has already planned to increase rates starting this month and has only authorized carriers to sell new policies through June 2018. So if you haven't purchased flood insurance, NOW is the time!
